1- composing and listening to electronic music while laid directly on the speaker
2- furniture to give a full massage with audio synchronised files
Step 1: Drawing the idea
- a musical remixed synchronised with
- a massage performance, lighted and filmed
- the making of a sensitive stimulating furniture (research sketches)
Step 2: Body path
I used this schema also to synchronise my work with the lighting assistant and the musician : the position and the gesture of my hands on the body of the patient indicates what instrument to play or what colour to project on the scene. So Left cicuit is only for colour. RIght cicuit with timecode and musical notes for the musician with 5 different electronic instruments coresponding to body parts.
Step 3: Partition
LINE 1 = DERUSH
choosing music samples to thrill the patient : from very delicate to super hardcore music back to delicate music to be looped and repeated on request.
LINE 2 = COLORS
Blue : deep and slow
green : mysterious
orange : energetic
red : furious
These colors are projected on the scene during the performance.
LINE 3 = EXPRESSIVE MUSICAL DRAWINGS
To learn music it's very practial to make an expressive illustration of the music, like this you can analyse personaly music, understand the structure.
LINE 4 = DEFORMED BODY
in my case as the massage choreography is quite simple and cyclic it is possible to draw a deformed human body adapted to the timecode + orange lines for my hands path.
During the live performance i only need the 2 last lines to make sure the music and massage movements are synchronised (thanks to the time code).
